I get this error whenever I try and install lightworks v. 14. I downloaded from the download link at www.lwks.com. I am running windows 10 64 bit. I get the same error for the beta (64 bit) and the release 64 bit and 32 bit installers. Any ideas?

The full error is: "The system must be restarted to complete the installation of Windows Installer. Once/nth [that error is there, not mine] system has been restarted, please run the Lightworks installer again."

(I have restarted multiple times).

Hello,

Lightworks installer does not need a restart on Windows. I've never encountered or heard abou this issue.

It could be that some kind of third party software blocks the installation to finish correctly. I suspect that some kind of virus scanner, maybe even Windows Defender, is the cause of the trouble.

Please restart your computer, disable all anti virus software (including Defender) temporarily and try again.
